    10. 10. Evaluations of Strategic OptionsOption 1: Harvest Professional-Tradesmen Channels Increase profitability at the expense of market share Sr. Expense Heads Current Figures With a 5% With a 7% No premium premium 1 Sales 35 36.75 37.45 2 COGS 22.75 22.75 22.75 3 Gross Profit 12.25 14.00 14.70 4 SG&A 8.75 9.19 9.36 5 Operating Income 3.5 4.81 5.38 37 to 54 % increase in Operating Income Milwaukee (10%) and Makita (5%) are priced at premiums over B&D Increasing prices with the current product and its perception as a poor professional product is not advised as it could trigger a fall in market share
    11. 11. Evaluations of Strategic OptionsOption 2: Get Behind Black & Decker Name with Sub-Branding Tasted success previously with a similar strategy for replacement saw blades Sub-branding program has been done before Previous attempts to rebuild the B&D name in the Professional-Tradesmen segment have not been successful B&D’s strong association with the Consumer segment has an overpowering impact Risky, expensive and unpredictable outcome
    12. 12. Evaluations of Strategic OptionsOption 3: Drop the Black & Decker Name from the Professional-Tradesmen Segment Free from any negative associations Ride on existing success of the DeWalt brand name DeWalts relative success with high awareness and purchase interest New brand will enable product repositioning with respect to price, quality, color and other attributes Limited financial risk Building a new brand identity is a rather costly process
    13. 13. Recommendations – 5Ps Product  Discontinue Black & Decker branded products from the Professional Segment  Utilize “Industrial Yellow” as the brand color of DeWalt tools since it is aggressive, highly visible, associated with safety and not yet with any other Price:  Currently B&D is priced lower than its competitors  Price it at least 5% higher than current prices on par with Makita
    14. 14. Recommendations – 5Ps Place  Home Center and Two-Step contribute over 65% of total sales in the Professional segment  Traditionally B&D has had a low share of 10% as compared to Makita’s share  B&D should enter these two channels since they are high volume markets
    15. 15. Recommendations – 5Ps Promotion:  Utilize the DeWalt brand name on all Professional Segment tools with a service and warranty handling endorsement by B & D  To be promoted as DeWalt: Serviced and distributed by Black & Decker since it attracted highest purchase intent (58%)
    16. 16. Recommendations – 5Ps Portfolio Management:  Contrary to common perception, most of B&D products were of extremely high quality  Price premium for high quality products  Miter Saws, Routers / Trimmers and Belt Sanders could be either  Eliminated  Re-engineered
